I am confident Lowery’s work will help spurthe conversations and personal growth necessary to improve our ability to reach and teach all students”“Black Girl in Suburbia is a very compelling documentary that will elicit feelings of happiness, anger and frustration.

The documentary is a courageous look into the lived experiences of many young black women in our schools today.

Later, I saw the other mom at a school event and asked to speak to her.

She was so kind and generous, and wanted it to be a teaching moment for the boys, which it was.

Word is definitely spreading about BGS and my hope is to spread the dialogue across the country and internationally!
